Laura was born and raised in Sacramento, California before moving to Arizona as a teenager. She graduated from the University of Arizona with a BA in Creative Writing, and discovered a passion for working with youth through her minor in Adolescents, Community, and Education (ACE). After working as an English TA at an alternative high school in Tucson, Laura moved to the Rogue Valley to be closer to family. She plans on continuing her education so she can eventually earn a degree in social work.
When she’s not helping our amazing students, Laura loves spending her free time reading, writing, hiking, napping, and hanging out with her dog.
